New treatment starts tomorrow

Scott started radiation last Wednesday - he'll continue this until he's completed 10 treatments (not on weekends).  It is called a "short course" of radiation.  He does a shorter cycle than he did in 2006 but at a higher dose per treatment.  

He starts the keytruda infusions tomorrow and will do those every 3 weeks until....well until they aren't working so I guess indefinitely.  He will be NY Presbyterian's first brain cancer patient taking keytruda so we hope that they'll be writing articles about Scott some day - about how well this drug works to fight brain cancer!! 

That's it for now.  Pray for some good results from this treatment!

Xoxo,
Julie
